Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How can we know that God exists? Is it possible to find proof of religion's most significant issues? Can we presume that the orderliness of the universe offers evidence of a purposeful creator? David Hume's Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion explores these perennial questions in a thought-provoking and highly readable style.

This classic examines its controversial subject in the well-known manner of the Platonic dialogues. Hume's characters discuss God's existence, his divinity and attributes, and the reasons behind his creation of the world. In clear, evocative prose, the debate's participants state and defend their positions, most of which center on the concept currently known as Intelligent Design. Hume's intense skepticism provides ingenious, persuasive refutations of the notion that reason and logic provide support for religious dogma. A work of historical importance as well as of ongoing relevance to modern life, this volume endures as both an inspiring philosophical inquiry and a literary gem.

Synopsis:

Equally captivating as a philosophical argument and as a work of literature, this classic is particularly relevant in terms of its criticism of the reasoning behind Intelligent Design.
